Current Status: Open for Applications
Maximum value: £ 50,000

Objectives of Fund

The FareShare Surplus with Purpose Fund is aimed at offsetting the costs faced by food producing companies seeking to redistribute their edible surplus comestibles to charities and community groups helping vulnerable people.

The fund can also be used to unlock harder to reach surplus food, or surplus food that’s further up the supply chain.

Value Notes

The programme has an overall budget of £3 million available.

Businesses could be eligible for up to £50,000 worth of funding. Greater sums can be negotiated where appropriate for high volumes of surplus food.

Who Can Apply

Food production businesses in the UK that are seeking to redistribute additional surplus food items may qualify for support.

Eligible Expenditure

Funding can be used to cover the additional staff costs needed for packing and sorting edible surplus food, or in building, implementing and managing new processes. It could also cover packaging and transportation costs, or lost income from the sale of surplus to animal feed or anaerobic digestion.
